it WAS a 8x10 that printed poorly and i cut the parrot out of it... white background which was deleted and the other fog shot put in. the magnifing glass and parrot pic were setup with clamps holding them upright on a white lexan soft box.

Hey, what a setup!

A friend of mine had one of those birds, the largest of the parrots. The beak reached around your wrist, and probably it could have copped it off. But it wouldn't, it was the most gentle of all creatures.

What an interesting set-up! I never would have thought of doing something like that. That's really different.
